They are a nuisance if they come into your garden, my friends has lost all the other birds from their as a Sparrow Hawk has moved into nextdoors' large garden, they love to eat baby fledglings, the sooner it goes the better.

had one in my garden some time ago, photo through a rain spotted window so not a lot of good, knowing they do not just take birds I put some traps down and took out a lot of small rodents (mice) the sparrow hawk may have gone but the mice will still be there, if that is what it was after, you may think you have a clean scene, but you are no further away from a rat than six feet, frightening aint it?
